TitleLetter from Karl Pearson, on a paper 'On the significance of Bravais' formulæ for regression, in the case of skew correlation' by George Udny Yule to George Howard Darwin
Date27 December 1896
DescriptionHe has tried to complete some work on skew correlations previously but has not had the time to complete the. Therefore,Yule's discovery is of great value. Having re-read the paper, he thinks that some of the tables can be omitted. He doesn't think much can be gained by lots of compression.
